Q1. For a long and narrow cross-section (i.e., ratio of b/t, breadth b and thickness t above 10) bar subjected to torsion T, the value of maximum shear stress will be)
(b) T/ (4bt²)
(d) None of these
Q2. The thread used for transmission of power is
(a) Square thread
(b) Buttress thread
(c) Acme thread
(d) British association thread
Q3. The number of instantaneous centres for the mechanism having 5 links is…………
Q4. For a slider crank mechanism, the velocity and acceleration of the piston at inner dead Centre will be:
Where ‘ω’ is the angular velocity of the crank and ‘r’ its radius.
(a) 0 and 0
(b) 0 and ω² r
(c) 0 and < ω² r
(d) 0 and > ω² r
Q5. Which of the following is not an extensive property?
(c) internal energy
Q6. Properties of substances like pressure, temperature and density in thermodynamic coordinates are
(a) path functions
(b) point functions
(c) cyclic functions
(d) real functions
from torsion education
Sol. for power transmission square threads are used as it has high efficiency. Applications of square threads are screw Jack, power transmission mechanism etc.
Sol. We know,
No. of instantaneous center(N) = n(n-1)/2 ——— (1)
n – No. of links
From eqn. (1)
we know that,
In a slider-crank mechanism,
At, inner dead center θ = 0°
Velocity of slider (v) = rω(sinθ+sin2θ/2n)
Acceleration of slider (a) = r=rω^2 (cosθ+cos2θ/n)
=rω^2 ( 1+1/n)>rω^2 orω^2 r
Properties represents the characteristics of the system. Properties which depend on mass is called extensive or extrinsic properties.
Example : Mass, volume entropy, enthalpy, internal energy.
Properties of substances like pressure, temperature and density in thermodynamic coordinates are point functions.
